Though New Year's Resolutions aren't exactly commandments set in stone, we still make our lists every January. By December, we realize that we were a little over zealous. We didn't lose 15 pounds or subsist solely on kale juice for days at a time. We didn't finish a different book every 3 days, but instead spent even more time on our various devices. But does it really matter if you keep those resolutions? Is it about achieving your goals, or are New Year's resolutions more about reflecting on yourself and what you can do better? Admitting that there are things you want to change, and at least taking baby steps towards a more fulfilling life.
This year, we're keeping our resolutions small and achievable. Focusing on how small changes can make a big impact. While most people are trying to shake off their everyday routines, we're trying to find and adhere to a schedule. After a year with a lot of highs and lows (graduating from college, jumping around to different jobs, starting this website), it was almost too easy to wake up at 11am everyday, go to bed at 3am, and watch tv for hours on end. This year, we're embracing a more structured life. That doesn't mean we won't spend Sundays in a vegetative position, but we believe that waking up earlier, having a more consistent work out schedule, and going to bed at a reasonable hour will lead to a much more balanced life. Like we said...baby steps.
